always good to look at the blogging tools available

raymonda's curator insight, April 29, 5:48 AM
A blog is an online journal which allows users to post their ideas and thoughts. It also allows them to link to other resources or websites to back up their views or to give examples. Why makes it good to be used in learning? The fact that users can comment on posts and interact with other learners make it motivating and helpful in collaborative learning. It is the place where learners can get updates and new ideas about topics of interest.

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.


It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.


If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.


The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.


It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

If you want learn more about social media curation and/or start your own scoop.it you should read this excellent and detailed blog post from Shirley Williams. [note mg]


Are you asking the following questions: “What is social media curation?” and “How does it add value?” Are you like many business owners trying to get your head around curation and the associated benefits? Well I have come to realize, you are not alone!


In an earlier post I defined curation. In this post I would like us to revisit that definition and share how value can be gained by demonstrating how to use Scoop.it.


Reminder of What’s Social Media Curation?


With the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, the amount of information on the internet can be overwhelming and time consuming. Consequently, the role of the social media curator has become increasingly more attractive. Social media curation is when you filter, select, review and reposition quality content on the web for a specific audience and/or topic...

This shows how social media affects the society such as in school classrooms and how it is important to have some life in social media. I feel that social media has become a big part in this world that social media can bring quite a number of positive impacts and how it can impact a community, or rather a class. I think social media's impact on societies and people will increase both positively and negatively and there is no sign of decrease in usage social media.

Is Content Curation the New Community Builder?

Is Content Curation the New Community Builder? | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Eric Brown for social media explorer.


I selected this article because it reaffirms what many of us already know but it's still good to see this in writing: Content curation and Media Curation (a mix of  machine aggregation and Human Curation) are starting to pick up steam.


Here are some highlights:


Curation comes up when search stops working,” says author and NYU Professor Clay Shirky. But it’s more than a human-powered filter.


**“Curation comes up when people realize that it isn’t just about information seeking, it’s also about synchronizing a community.”


The author says and I agree with him:



**"The value will be in the expertise of the curator, people will not read junk, and the best of the best curators will create digital domination with vibrant communities".


There is also a great quote from Fred Wilson's AVB blog in which he details what he would do if he were starting the Village Voice now:


**I would not print anything. I would not hire a ton of writers. I would build a website and a mobile app (or two or three). I would hire a Publisher and a few salespeople.


**I would hire an editor and a few journalists. And then I’d go out and find every blog, twitter, facebook, flickr, youtube, and other social media feed out there that is related to downtown NYC


**and I would pull it all into an aggregation system where my editor and journalists could cull through the posts coming in, curate them, and then publish them
